    Sweaty? I’ve never been insulted on the basis of my perspiration level before, so this is fresh, new and innovative. God bless you.

    Not conceited, just delusional.

#and I just don’t feel entitled to someone else’s life’s work.

That comment exactly!! It’s not mine and I can survive without it, so I will.

This is why honey is not vegan.

The problem here is that honey, especially if you buy it ethically from an apiarist, isn’t actually detrimental to the well-being of the bee or the hive. In the wild, honey is used as a food stock, but in a domesticated honeybee colony, the bees are fed quite well, and so the honey is a surplus.
The alternatives, like sugar, relies on monocrops in third world countries, with transient labour. Growing up, there was a sugarcane field by my house, and I’m sure the Haitian men who worked backbreaking hours hacking a machete through knife-bladed leaves in 40 degree heat for a couple dollars a day would have traded a testicle to be a Canadian honeybee. Stevia’s going the same way, iirc.
Additionally, apiarists are actually huge proponents and activists for sustainable bee-keeping, and it’s estimated that the domesticated hive may be the last great hope for declining populations, because we can optimize their chances for survival.
It’s their life’s work, sure, but it’s not the death of them to use it responsibly.

literally read anything about the history of sugarcane and the cuban sugar industry if you think sugar is or ever has been more ethical than honey

Bees would be pretty fucked without beekeepers, considering that wild colonies are pretty well decimated and human intervention is the one thing keeping the populations up in some places. A healthy bee colony makes more honey than it can use, anyway, and it isn’t as if you’re scarring their poor little hearts for life by taking some of the honey from them. Not to mention, a skilled apiarist can tell by looking at the hive when it is sick, and with what, and how to treat it, as well as being able to check and treat for mites and prevent colony collapse and other animals robbing the hive and destroying the nest.
In addition, captive bees provide an excellent resource to study bees in general and find reasons that they’re dying out and develop ways to save them both in captivity and in the wild.
What makes me cringe most of all though is that vegans seem to think that bees have a concept of being treated as “slaves” and having their work taken advantage of. The people working sugar cane fields know what its like to be a slave. A bee never will.

    My anaconda don’t want none until the mating season, which occurs during the rainy season, and can last for several months, usually from April to May. During this time, males must find females. Typically, female snakes will lay down a trail of pheromones for the males to follow, but it is still unclear how the males of this species track a female’s scent. Male anacondas also frequently flick their tongues to sense chemicals that signal the presence of the female.[26]
